We visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening and it was very busy. When we arrived our table wasn't ready and we had to wait out on the street. After 20 minute wait we were seated. The service that evening was shocking, we had to ask to order and had a 40 minute wait for our food (we didn't eat... More

We've been coming to l'italiana for years now and have never been disappointed. The menu has a good selection and is a decent price if anything for the quality of the food I feel they are undercharging. I always go for my staple favourite 'pizza sorento' my grandad lovessss the lasagne. The staff are friendly and smiley which really makes... More

We called in early evening (7pm) and just managed to get a table as we had not booked. The restaurant was turning people away after us. Freshly cooked food, good menu. We only had the main course as we were in a hurry, but really enjoyed.

First time visit here the day after the referendum! Very busy place. I had the carbonara and my partner had the pizza florentine. Both excellent meals, good portion size and reasonable price for lunch (St Albans is usually over priced on everything , it needs to get a grip, London it isn't). Service was slick and friendly. We'll be going... More

We had breakfast here. The girl who served us was very nice and the food was good but the man working behind the counter at the coffee machine was very rude and kept coughing without covering his mouth it was very unpleasant to watch as our table was across from him not to mention very unhygienic as there was uncovered...

Food was delicious. Staff were friendly and attentive. We didn't have to wait long for our food and the portions were adequate. I would recommend reserving as they get quite busy. Will definitely visit again!
